about this item

The author examines social security benefits in the UK and suggests small improvements to the operation of the system. He explains how benefits work, circumstances for them, and types; misconceptions about them in relation to spending, dependency, disincentives to work, families where generations have never worked, immigrants taking advantage of benefits, and fraud and abuse; the real problems with benefits, including the size of the operation, the human factor, presumptuous administration, moral judgments, the complexity of the system, mistakes, selectivity, and means testing; how much benefits should be; reforms for benefits for older people, people with disabilities, families, people out of work, and for housing; and ideas for reform, including a universal basic income. Distributed in North America by University of Chicago Press. Annotation ©2017 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (
